You can now find the Meditate Mass 351 Challenge at http://www.kenmattsson.com/mm351/.
I completed it in May 2018, and I’m still working on documenting all of my visits!
The Meditate Mass 351 Challenge is my spiritual practice to visit each of the 351 Massachusetts cities and towns. I have two criteria to count as one of the 351:
- I have to actually be in the town and either meditate/pray/sit quietly for at least 10 minutes (I’m also finding that walking meditation works well too!) This makes it so I can’t count places that I’m driving through on the Massachusetts Turnpike (Yup, just picked up Blandford!)
- I have to take a picture of me in front of a landmark or building that would only be in that town (e.g. post office, town hall, police station, etc.) It doesn’t have to be a government building, but at least one where there’s no mistaking where it is. For example, I could choose Durgin Park or Fanueil Hall in Boston. It also means I can’t just step over the border 3 feet and sit for 10 minutes. I have to find where the life of the town is.
